Here are some shots I took just before I mailed him off to Egypt. When I mailed him he had no name, and now he does. When I mailed him it was to someone I knew, now he is on the road with strangers, or on his own somewhere... There are a great many Smalls in the world, but only this one is free to find the world on his own terms. He is not part of a Collection, he is...
The Traveling Man!!
 ... when he left he looked like this...

 Valley of Queens

Just one of those places on Earth, the Great Pyramid of Giza in the foreground and the Pyramid of Khafre in the distance. This is the kind of thing I had in mind from the get-go.

Go on... do it!

If you look just over TM's left shoulder you will see the head of the fabled Sphinx in the valley beyond.

PART THREE : JAPAN - Nagoya Castle

Nagoya Castle (AKA Ninomaru Palace) was completed in 1617. It was constructed on the orders of Ieyasu TOKUGAWA in order to secure an important position on the Tokaido Highway, and to ward off attacks from Osaka.
In May of 1945, air raids on Nagoya destroyed most of the buildings. Fortunately, 3 corner towers (one seen in the top photo) and 3 gates remained standing. Most of the paintings on the sliding doors and walls of Hommaru Palace survived fires and have been handed down as important
cultural assets.


This report was made by Andrew Grubb while on vacation in Japan. He described the encounter in email:
"I had been looking at the Traveling Man web site the night before I left for Japan, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw his familiar personage and tell-tale green head band that next day, enjoying the awesome spectacle of Nagoya Castle! He appears to have picked up some foot gear along the way..."
